Binge and "Future Self"

Friday, July 12, 2013

My biggest problem with food is that I allow my emotions to conduct my eating at times. I have been making a huge effort to not eat based on emotion, but on hunger. I actually dropped 5 lbs this week and made it 4 days without a binge...until last night. Now, last night was not my typical binge, it was small (in comparison). I got home around 9:30p and was feeling great, happy even! I put the food off, put the food off...I had brought food home (all of my rice, all of my beans and a taco) from the restaurant. I busied myself with other things and dire mistake...I turned on the TV.

I did eat the chicken taco, I ate 2 light string cheeses and 3 corn tortillas (I didn't eat the rice and beans). So, it wasn't huge, but even smaller binges affect weight. I got on the scale this morning and I had gained 2.5 pounds since yesterday. It makes a difference. I will do better today...and I re-started my DSLB (Days Since Last Binge) counter on my phone. I will get to a full week! And then I will get to two weeks, and eventually I will be able to control my emotional eating.

This morning when I got on FB, I saw this pic. I know the Universe is trying to support me in this endeavor.

I printed this pic out and I put it on my fridge. I wanted to blog about this binge because doing so created accountability for me and increases my awareness.

I know I can do this, it is just going to take 100% effort, one day at a time.

    Hope you're feeling proud of the progress you've made. Progress not perfection gets it done! Discovering what triggers emotional eating is such an important step. emoticon emoticon emoticon
